Polar Bear Club's annual plunge into Lake Michigan

Jan. 1, 2013 12:00 p.m. - Jan. 1, 2013

Join the Milwaukee Polar Bear Club on New Year's Day at noon at Bradford Beach at Lake Michigan.  

Eighty-two-year-old president Garth Gaskey made his 60th jump last year and hopes to be back this year.  Join him!

By the way, the tradition of jumping into Lake Michigan's icy water has taken place every Jan. 1 at high noon since 1916.  

Happy New Year, Milwaukee!
